Do Conservatives believe in a United States or a united States of America?


The Declaration of Independance refers to the united States while the Constitution uses the phrase United States, with a capital 'U'. The Ariticles of Confederation and the Continental Congress epitomize a united States of America with a true "limited" central government, while the Constitution envisions a United States of America with much broader, but not limitless, powers given to the central government. Which form of government do you think today's Conservatives actually believe in?

    That is because that is the proper order...personal, local, State and then federal except where specified explicitly in the Constitution.

    It seems you are confusing Conservatives and Republicans...most Rpublicans are not Conservatives, or at least not conservative enough...

    A trueConservative/Libertarian would be consistent across ALL laws, Departments etc..Amendment X...

    Yes, that was assumed in my question, but do conservatives think the 'u' in united States of the Declaration of Independence remain uncapitalized, which signfizes one thing, or capitalized as in the Constitution, which means something different?

    Then you don't agree with the change from the Articles of Confederation and the Continental Congress (what you described) to the Constitution (with its Supremacy Clause) and the United States of America , do I have that right?
